43. Pregabalin in Patients With Inadequately Treated Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: A Randomized Withdrawal Trial (Abstract)

Pregabalin in Patients With Inadequately Treated Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: A Randomized Withdrawal Trial This study used a randomized withdrawal design to evaluate the efficacy of pregabalin versus placebo for pain relief in patients with painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy inadequately treated by other therapies.A total of 665 patients received pregabalin in a 6-week single-blind phase. Two hundred ninety-four patients who achieved a ≥ 30% pain response were randomized (...) to receive pregabalin or placebo in a double-blind phase for a further 13 weeks. The primary endpoint was the change in mean pain score from single-blind baseline to double-blind endpoint for pregabalin versus placebo (last observation carried forward [LOCF]). Secondary endpoints included a baseline observation carried forward (BOCF) analysis of mean pain score; time to loss of pain response; and other assessments of pain, sleep, function, and quality of life (QOL).Pregabalin numerically improved all

Pregabalin for chronic prostatitis. Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a condition that is detrimental to the quality of life of men. Evidence suggests that it may have a neuropathic origin and therefore medications such as pregabalin might have a role in the controlling of symptoms.The primary objective was to compare pregabalin to other modalities of pain relief to alleviate men's symptoms of CP/CPPS.The secondary objective was to assess the safety and effectiveness (...) of pregabalin to improve various individual symptoms consistent with CP/CPPS.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE (1966 to May 2012), EMBASE (1980 to May 2012), CINAHL, clinicaltrials.gov, Google Scholar, and reference lists of articles and abstracts from conference proceedings, without language restriction for pregabalin treatment of Class III prostatitis and CP/CPPS.Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing pregabalin to placebo or other types of analgesics

Effect of pregabalin on sleep in patients with fibromyalgia and sleep maintenance disturbance: a randomized, placebo-controlled, 2-way crossover polysomnography study To assess the effect of pregabalin on polysomnographic (PSG) measures of sleep and patient-rated sleep, tiredness, and pain in fibromyalgia patients.We performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-period crossover PSG study. Patients ages ≥18 years with fibromyalgia satisfied subjective and objective sleep (...) disturbance criteria prior to randomization. Eligible patients were randomized (1:1) to pregabalin (300-450 mg/day) or placebo for crossover period 1, and vice versa for period 2. Each crossover period comprised a dose-adjustment and dose-maintenance phase, with a 2-week taper/washout between periods. In-laboratory PSGs were recorded during 2 consecutive nights at screening and at the end of each crossover period. The primary end point was the difference in sleep maintenance defined by PSG-recorded wake

53. Pregabalin reduces pain in patients with chronic pancreatitis in a randomized, controlled trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pregabalin reduces pain in patients with chronic pancreatitis in a randomized, controlled trial Pain is a disabling symptom for patients with chronic pancreatitis (CP) and difficult to treat. Evidence from basic science and human studies indicates that pain processing by the central nervous system is abnormal and resembles that observed in patients with neuropathic pain disorders. We investigated whether agents used to treat patients with neuropathic pain are effective in CP.We conducted (...) a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the effects of the gabapentoid pregabalin as an adjuvant analgesic. We measured pain relief, health status, quality of life, and tolerability in 64 patients with pain from CP; they were randomly assigned to groups given increasing doses of pregabalin or placebo (control) for 3 consecutive weeks. The primary end point was pain relief, based on a visual analogue scale documented by a pain diary. Secondary end points included Patients' Global

54. Safety and efficacy of pregabalin in patients with central post-stroke pain. (Abstract)

Safety and efficacy of pregabalin in patients with central post-stroke pain. Pregabalin has demonstrated efficacy in several forms of neuropathic pain, but its long-term efficacy in central post-stroke pain (CPSP) is unproven. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of pregabalin versus placebo in patients with CPSP. A 13-week, randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled, parallel group study of 150 to 600 mg/day pregabalin was conducted in patients aged ≥18 years with CPSP (...) . The primary efficacy endpoint was the mean pain score on the Daily Pain Rating Scale over the last 7 days on study drug up to week 12 or early termination visit. Secondary endpoints included other pain parameters and patient-reported sleep and health-related quality-of-life measures. A total of 219 patients were treated (pregabalin n=110; placebo n=109). A mean pain score at baseline of 6.5 in the pregabalin group and 6.3 in the placebo group reduced at endpoint to 4.9 in the pregabalin group and 5.0

Pregabalin for peripheral neuropathic pain: a multicenter, enriched enrollment randomized withdrawal placebo-controlled trial To date, published neuropathic pain randomized controlled trials of pregabalin have involved primarily diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). This multicenter trial evaluated pregabalin in a broader range of neuropathic pain etiologies.In this enriched enrollment randomized withdrawal trial, 256 patients received single blind, flexible (...) dose pregabalin for 4 weeks; stable concomitant analgesics were allowed. One hundred sixty-five (65%) had a ≥30% pain improvement and 157 were randomized and treated, double blind, to either continue pregabalin (n=80) or to receive placebo (n=77) for 5 weeks.Of the single blind responders randomized, 81% on placebo and 86% on pregabalin completed the double-blind phase. At the double-blind endpoint, mean (SD) pain scores were 2.9 (1.9) in the pregabalin group and 3.5 (1.7) in the placebo group (P

58. The efficacy and safety of pregabalin in the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with chronic lumbosacral radiculopathy (Abstract)

The efficacy and safety of pregabalin in the treatment of neuropathic pain associated with chronic lumbosacral radiculopathy We evaluated the efficacy of pregabalin in patients with chronic lumbosacral radiculopathy. This randomized, controlled, withdrawal trial included five phases: screening (4-18 days); run-in (4-10 days) to screen out placebo responders; single-blind (28 days) to identify pregabalin responders; double-blind to randomize responders to pregabalin or placebo (35 days (...) ); and final study medication taper (7 days). The primary endpoint was time to loss of response (LOR) during the double-blind phase (1-point increase in pain, discontinuation, or rescue-medication use). In the single-blind phase, 58% of patients had 30% pain reduction. In the double-blind phase, pregabalin (n=110) and placebo (n=107) groups did not differ significantly in time to LOR. Adverse events caused the discontinuation of 9.9% and 5.6% of pregabalin-treated and placebo-treated patients, respectively

A randomized, controlled trial of oxycodone versus placebo in patients with postherpetic neuralgia and painful diabetic neuropathy treated with pregabalin The aim of this randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study was to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of pregabalin in combination with oxycodone or placebo, in patients with either postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) or painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN). After a 7-day washout period, 62 patients were randomized (...) to receive either oxycodone mixture 10 mg/day or placebo mixture for 1 week. Patients were then started on open-label pregabalin (75, 150, 300 and 600 mg/day) according to a forced titration dosing regimen, while continuing the same dosage of oxycodone or placebo for 4 weeks. The primary efficacy measure was a decrease in the pain-intensity score of at least 2cm and a pain score <4cm measured using a 10-cm visual analogue scale (VAS) following pregabalin dosage escalation and treatment for 4 weeks
